Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia has engaged global online distribution solutions provider, SiteMinder, to implement a holistic technology offering, and to extend their reach to more online markets around the world. Voyages’ properties at Ayers Rock Resort in the Northern Territory and Home Valley Station in East Kimberley, Western Australia will use SiteMinder’s Channel Manager to connect their Opera Property Management System (PMS) to multiple online booking channels around the globe. “SiteMinder’s Channel Manager will provide a seamless, two-way integration between Voyages’ Opera PMS and dozens of high-performing, international booking sites, with reservations from those sites automatically delivered back into their PMS. This will have enormous business efficiency benefits across the Voyages properties,” Don Weraksa, Business Development Manager, SiteMinder, said.
The seven properties include Longitude 131 and the remote, 40-room Kimberley property, Home Valley Station. “Voyages are a respected and well-known brand and we are excited we can offer their unique properties a reliable, fast and efficient distribution platform that will streamline their online operations and optimise their online revenue in what is an increasingly competitive market,” Weraksa added.
Ray Stone, Executive General Manager - Sales, Marketing and Distribution, Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia, said, "SiteMinder was selected as our channel management partner because their integrated distribution solution best supported our revenue management and distribution strategy. SiteMinder has permitted us to automate and streamline existing distribution systems and processes, creating significant distribution efficiencies, while also allowing us to strengthen and further expand our distribution network through the wide range of partnerships they have established with key domestic and international online travel agents.”
